The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has awarded a £3.1m grant for 11 projects spanning England and Wales that support people representing themselves in court

Lexis®Library update: The grant will facilitate the provision of legal guidance and advice to people without legal representation.

Speaking about the funding, President of the Access to Justice Foundation, Lord Goldsmith QC, said: ‘This important initiative with the MOJ will increase the support available to litigants in person and ensure that key resources are in place at a local, regional, and national level to help people facing the legal process alone to access free and affordable advice.’
